Colorado avalanche danger worst in 30 years

Colorado avalanche danger worst in 30 years — inside and outside of ski areas, experts say - The Denver Post

just in case this isn't already abundantly clear.

IT'S OK!. We have BCA air bags now, go get it!!!


seriously though, If I see one more news caster promote these fucking things I am going to go bananas. There is so much more to BC skiing than having an air bag.

question: If the slide rips to bedrock and you get drug over the scree field does triggering the air bag shatter your femurs less?

be smart.

I've got helium in mine to launch me into the sky. Still need to figure out the how to get back down part.

you just need to pack some heat when you ski, then shoot the baloon!

You know that hydrogen is lighter than helium and would work better....

BCA N20

This gentlemen is demonstrating the life-saving protection afforded by BCA's new N20 pack. Over 95% of BCA N20 users never get off the couch, much less set foot in avalanche terrain.
